InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous strong sides that make it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-based apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For example, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to perform a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. In simpler words, appending new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if some problem shows up during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

InnoDB is available with all our Linux cloud website hosting plans by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and manage any script-based software application that needs the InnoDB database engine without encountering any problem as soon as you order your account. InnoDB will be pre-selected as the default engine for a particular MySQL database during the app installation, no matter if you make use of our one-click installer or create the database and activate the application manually, on the condition that the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll store regular backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be certain that you won’t ever lose any data in case you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some important info – you’ll just need to get in touch with us and we will restore everything the way it was.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated plans by default, so as soon as you order a new account, you can move on and activate any script-powered software application that requires this particular MySQL database storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or decide to take advantage of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the given app’s requirements. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having any impediment and without the need to modify any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we’ll always have a seven-day-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you delete or change any content accidentally, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to make use of any script-powered web app that needs this particular database engine without needing to set up anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand new VPS server will be ready within 1 hour, so you can log in and begin creating your websites right away. When you set up a new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will select the engine for that database automatically. Thus, you can run different apps simultaneously without having to change anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-driven online journal that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-powered e-commerce website that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for instance.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database engine, so you will not have to activate it manually in case you wish to use scripts that require it. All it takes to activate such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to begin the installation process – as soon as the script installation wizard acquires access to the database and starts dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that require MyISAM – the other widely used MySQL engine, so you won’t have to edit any settings on the server. This will permit you to use various scripts on one single physical machine and to use it to its fullest capacity.
